There reason I have decided to make this thread is well, for a few different reasons actually. One because I want to make Childhood trauma, specially childhood abuse, more understood by our community. There is a great misunderstanding here about it I have come to see. I know that there is a great misunderstanding about it because of when I have posted about it, everytime I am shot down by people on here trying to discredit it, saying it is not true or whatever. So that is my second reason for making this to show I am not just making this up.
The main post the inspired this thread was the post I made in the Diaper Forum in the thread "Someone should make a forum..", where I stated in one of my posts....
"We know that sexual abuse causes homosexuality with most sexual abused people, so there has got to be something specific about us."
Now i got A LOT of negative responses from this comment. Now I do regret saying it so vaguely with no description, and no sources cited, but I do NOT regret saying it because it is a very true statement. Which I am about to prove to everyone why it is true that sexual abuse can cause homosexuality.
So first here is a video from youtube of the Tyra's show where she has Dr. Drew Pinksy s a geust answering a few qeustions about a female teen prostitute they have on the show. Dr. Drew is a Board Certified Physician and Addiction Medical Specialist, plus the host of Loveline Radio show which was once on MTV for a couple of years and has been on the radio since 1986! So Drew is VERY experianced doctor not in just physical medical conditions but of mental conditions. Watch video before finish reading this post/thread!
Now make sure you watch the ENTIRE VIDEO and read everything I said BEFORE responding. The whole video is important but here is the main part that I have typed up, in which I want you to focus most of your attention on...(the bold print is what is helping prove my point)
Tyra: “How can someone at 14 years old….why would they turn to prostitution?”
Dr. Drew: “You been asking that question of these young ladies, they are such bright young people, and you wonder what they could be thinking to make them do this. In fact when it comes to aggressive self destructive acting out, their thinking about it is always distorted, their justifying their behaviors. But the reality is, particularly in Victoria’s case, every case I have dealt with like hers, there is always some antecedent history of sexual trauma, typically sexually abuse. The extraordinary thing about humans is when things are terrorizing to us and overwhelming in childhood, they become immensely attractive when we hit puberty. So there is actually a drive to reenact those things, as though there is some mastery over those, by putting yourself back in that setting of explortation.”
Tyra: “Have you been sexually abused?”
Victoria: “Yeah, when I was 5 years old.”
Tyra: “When you were 5 years old? Dr. Drew your always right!”
Dr. Drew: “You know when it becomes to this extreme behavior, that are so disruptive and they do not make sense, but people always asking how could this be? There is always something there, as you mentioned, a why driving it. It’s not rational! These aren’t rational things, these are motivation systems that get set up early in life, and drive them back into those circumstances of exploitation. Their perception is, that they are in control of it, their reenacting it, gaining mastery, and gaining control of it, but in fact they are just compulsively reenacting the same thing over and over again.”
Now I know the very first thing you all are thinking...that it does not say one thing about homosexuality. I am greatly aware of this, but that is the beauty of this theory Dr. Drew has just spoke about. Overall Dr. Drew is saying that ANY traumatic childhood abuse (specially sexual abuse) effects a humans brain chemistry and the way they think, in which this becomes noticable by the time the child hits puberty. Now in this girls case she was sexually abuse by a guy at 5 years old, the effect this has had on her is she seeks to be sexually seducted over and over again by other stranger males, just like she was sexually seducted by a male stranger at 5 years old, so she reenacts this by being a prostitute. By doing this she is trying to "master" this traumatic event, showing herself she has control over it, and controls when it happens, how it happens, and ect. It changes her rationality of thinking logically. Now this can apply to homosexual abuse and soooo many other types of abuse as well. Being abused from the same sex/gender would cause a child to think unrational and make them reenact the traumtic event just like this girl and every other abuse victim does, by turning homosexual/bisexual and reenacting this traumitic event, by having same sex partners, acting out homosexual actions, as if the brain is trying to master and conquer this traumtic event, to show that they have CONTROL over the event, even though they really did not when it happened.
So no matter what type of traumatic childhood event(s) happened in life, it is going to manifest and effect the child when they grow older. Pretty much everytime with the child going back an acting out the same actions that happened to them. (not saying it would make them abuse little kids, your way missing the point if thats what you got from this.)
So please post your opinion or expeirances on this topic. Also if you still do not understand the point I am trying to make please post that so I can try to make it more clear.
Also I am NOT trying to offend or discriminate any homosexuals, or prostitutes or anyone! I am trying to create a better understanding for everyone here because I know we have a large homosexual/bisexual population here. Just trying to show you there is PLENTY of evidence and proof that this theory is true all around us.
Oh yes I want to add one last thing in supporting this theory, I have listened to Dr. Drew's show Loveline for many years, as long as I have known about my infantilism, which makes me listening to it for about 8 years now. Every single time someone called in who has sexually abused someone else, or is homosexual/bisexual, Dr. Drew always asks, so when were you abused? Like 99% of the time, the person would say yes they have been abused, most of the time sexually, and if not sexually then physically. Very few times someone would deny any abuse which was less than 1% of the time, but I beleive either they were lying, and is not lying they just do not remember it. Cause it is possible to be physically or sexually abused and not remember it but for it to still negatively affect you, if it happened at 5 years old or younger.
